16 INCH TURQUOISE HEISHI NECKLACE BY FRANK ORTIZ

$32.50
SKU#: 156706

This delicate natural turquoise Heishi necklace is handcrafted by Frank Ortiz of the San Felipe Pueblo in New Mexico.  This ancient process of jewelry-making involves slicing the raw material into tiny slices, drilling holes, stringing the slices, grinding the strand by hand on a stone wheel, and finally sanding and polishing gradually.  The final product of smooth, tiny beads is strung on a piece of sinew to create an airy, bright, and precious necklace, with unique variations in each stone and strand.

  • Handmade in New Mexico
  • Natural turquoise on sinew with sterling silver clasp
  • 16 inches long
